Use Word 2000 to Do Your French
or Spanish Homework
Microsoft Word 2000 (a popular word processing program) automatically detects whether you are typing in English, French, or Spanish, and uses the appropriate spelling or grammar checker for that sentence. This could be helpful when writing a story or essay in another language.
Did You Know?
No language uses all the available sounds. In their first five years or so, children develop the ability to discriminate the repertoire of sounds in their particular language. After this point, they begin losing the ability to even hear sounds not in their "language kit." That's why almost everyone who learns a second language as an adult speaks it with an accent.
